Horseback riding is FUN! Relax and enjoy beautiful guided trail rides from the FLORIDA HORSE PARK and on the Ocala GREENWAY Trail System. Horseback riding is FUN, SAFE and AFFORDABLE. We offer trail rides on our gentle, safe horses! See Florida's oak hammocks, pine forests, and green fields. Riding is the best way to see the beauty of the Ocala area. This is truly Florida at its best. The park is over 90,000 acres!!! We have outstanding horses and our guides have years of experience. We take riders 6 years old and up. We also do custom rides for the more experienced riders. Let us know what type of riding you enjoy, and we will do our best to accomodate..........Call for reservations!

Brought my friend's 15 year old who has never ridden a horse before. The horses are very gentle and I would highly recommend this as a beginner trail ride experience. If you are an experienced rider, you will be bored.

Nice horses and nice ride for complete beginners. If you are experienced, it is too monotonous, as they pace it for beginners. Although they ask you to inform your Level of experience with horse riding, they do not use the information at all. It all...More
